You Won't Believe These Ugly-Duckling Makeovers!
Smart Porch: After
Along with grown-up-gray siding, windows framed by black shutters, and lots of crisp-white trim, Round Here Renovations gave this 1946 Atlanta cottage a little verve and polish. A gabled porch with a Southern yellow pine wood floor, squared-off columns, an inviting swing, and a cottage-red door is accented by designer Carl Mattison's signature yellow house-number plaque. The concrete path, bordered with liriope, or "monkey grass," adds a little structure. Also, it never hurts to tidy up the yard.
